Christ The King Anglican Church is an outgrowth of a group of Anglican Churches based in Anderson, Indiana known as St. Michael the Archangel. St.Michael’s has a strong church planting ministry. Fr. Tom Tirman, then Rector (Senior Pastor) of the group served as the first rector at Christ The King, with Fr. Michael Henry as the onsite vicar.  Our first home was a former beauty shop in Arnold Court. The St. Michael leadership, volunteers, and our own original core group put a lot of loving effort into transforming this rental facility into a church, and it served us well until November, 2013, when half of Arnold Court was devastated by a tornado.  We were “nomads” for a time, first meeting in member’s homes, then at St. Joseph Hospital for three weeks, and then at the IUK Observatory Lecture Hall for three months; before finding a wonderful home in a shared facility with Christ Lutheran Church in April, 2014.  Christ The King has enjoyed the joyful privilege of sharing in the raising up, training, and sending out of people for ministry. This includes (then) Deacon Kim Akers, and (then) Deacon Skip Stephen Beyer. Both gentlemen are priests now. Fr. Kim serves at St. George in Muncie, and has a campus ministry at Ball State University. Fr. Skip is a Christian Counselor, and also has a ministry to the homeless in downtown Indianapolis.  In August, 2014 we rejoiced at the ordination of Rev. Brian Shone as a permanent Deacon. Brian has richly demonstrated a ministry of service in our midst from the earliest days of our life together, and continues to be an invaluable servant leader and resource.  Several others have made invaluable contributions to Christ The King, and then felt called to other churches and ministries as well. We rejoice that we’re a part of the Kingdom of God in so many places, and in many ways; while we continue to welcome those who are called to worship, serve and fellowship with us, as we grow in loving God with all that we are, and loving others with His love.
